I actually made a piece just like this before, but was inspired to make another one thanks to the leftover pieces of metal I had laying around from the first one.
The 4 corners of this piece actually started their life off as part of a vintage half circle napkin holder. Since it was no longer being used as a napkin holder, I of course did what I do best and cut it up. This allowed me to re-purpose it giving it new life and a new meaning.
I had a lot of fun making this piece, especially the clay heart which I adorned with old jewelry wings and a cut out of the word “follow”. The background is an actual piece of a Northern California map, which makes it extra fun for all you locals.
“Follow your heart” is one of my very favorite sayings and I am so blessed to be be able to follow mine on this creative journey. I hope you are inspired to follow yours as well, wherever it may lead!
